  • "list" is already a function name, so I wouldn't use it as a variable. This wouldn't happen if the language had sigils...
    • That's why you have quoting... er... that's why function application only applies to the first element of a cons... er... that's why you have Lisp-2... er... sigils are ugly, darnit.

      • Incidentally, Lisp uses the @ sigil for list interpolation.  Example:

        (let ((foo '(1 and 2)))
          `(this is a new list with ,@foo in it))

        That evaluates to (this is a new list with 1 and 2 in it).  It amuses me anyway :)
